Separation Anxiety

I just found out that starting Saturday I'm going to be without the internet for 10 days while we switch providers. I know you're as horrified as I am. So I decided to make a list of ways to help us get through this separation from each other.

1. At different times during the day, I will type such things as--In need of a Junior Mint fix. Where is my secret stash? OR @candicekenningt you're so funny. Of course I'd pick my children if forced to choose between them and American Idol--Then I'll pretend like you guys are actually reading them on twitter.

2. Throughout the day, think to yourself, 'If Kasie were here, what would she say?' I will, in turn, ask myself the same question about each of you. Most of the things you guys will be saying in my mind, by the way, are: "Yes, of course, you should have another cookie." OR "No, cleaning is totally overrated."

3. If you smack your elbow, stub your toe, or fall over a parking curb, feel free to say, "I just pulled a Kasie."

4. I've decided that during this time apart we should have a song to remember each other by. Then whenever we hear the song, we will think of each other. How about, The Script's "Breakeven (Falling to Pieces)"? A little too dramatic for the situation? I don't think so. Not all the lyrics are accurate, but they work. :)

If we follow these simple steps I think we will make it through the next week and a half without too much trauma. Don't forget about me while I'm gone. :)

  23. I always understood that someday there would be a black streak and everything would not be very good. Such a streak came this year and I was fired from my job, it was very unpleasant and I think that I would not have done this if it were not for this wonderful Cornbread Hemp online store. I first started taking cbd oil but realized it was uncomfortable for me so I bought these delicious CBD gummies that help me control my stress and get rid of my anxiety. So please pay attention to my advice.

  24. CBD products are actually good to cope with stress, but I think weed works way better for most people.

  26. Actually, everyone has to have a good relaxation, so in this case I would advise this delta 8 gummies as it could help you get rid of all health-related problems. I think a lot of people should know more about it because this product is quite common nowadays. You have the option to use this service yourself.

  27. It's terrible when your state of health is getting worse and worse. I lived through this time and had a lot of stress. My girlfriend was very worried about my condition and decided to order some cannabis products from this website https://joyorganics.com/products/sleep-gummies for me, to get rid of this permanent fatigue. I am very grateful to her, because this decision helped me to regenerate my sleep process. I think you can also compare all the information about these goods to make the right decision.
